    It's Roku by the way. The Roku requires you to register your credit card for an account when you activate it because not all of their apps are free. Some are, some aren't. They want to make the ability to purchase channels easy, so you're less inhibited to buy and try them out. It is like any app market where there's some developers will associate a cost to use their applications. The cost may be up front or through a subscription service. The category that had the most paid apps was Games though.

    Additionally, like other App Markets, there are also free and paid versions of an app, with the free having only basic functionality, and trialware type arrangements. :)
